Chelsea join Arsenal, Man City scouting Locatelli as Sassuolo star proves huge Blues fan online

Three of the Premier League's biggest clubs are following Sassuolo midfield ace Manuel Locatelli at the Euros.

Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano reports are one of the Premier League clubs that are interested in the Italian star.

The 23-year-old has attracted plenty of attention after his two fantastic performances in Italy's midfield at Euro 2020 which included a brace against Switzerland.

"He will be leaving Sassuolo," Romano said. "Many clubs have asked for Locatelli, from Spain, from Germany and England.

"The rumours that Arsenal made a bid are not true, but they are interested, Manchester City have scouted him for a long time and so have Chelsea."

Interestingly, not only does the midfielder have close ties with Jorginho and Emerson, but he also follows N'Golo Kante, former winger Eden Hazard and the Chelsea Instagram account.

Locatelli recently liked a picture of Thomas Tuchel lifting the Champions League trophy on Instagram.
